KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB)’s pre-tax profit for 1Q2010 rose 341% to RM43 million from RM9.7 million in the same quarter last year.

For 1Q2010, MBSB Group achieved earnings per share of 6.17 sen and an annualised return on equity of 35% while its net loan, advances and financing grew by 7.6%.
